    Hi Everyone
    I want to cover the walls of my room with science. Do you know nice big things I can print?

    thanks in advance

    Hi there, your project sounds really interesting, here are a few ideas for you:

    1.) DNA Double helix or human genome diagram,
    2.) Perhaps even some such as this DNA segment as artwork:

    3.) Plenty of diagrams depicting evolution, I quite like this one:

    4.) Periodic Table of the Elements
    5.) Order and orbits of the Planets.
    6.) Diagram of Star Classification.
    7.) Structure of an Atom.
    8.) Structure of an Eye.
    9.) What a brain looks like layed out flat.
    10.) Picture of our galaxy.

    Also perhaps pictures of microscopic bacteria:

    There are also sites which provide "a thousand digits of pi" as a printable streamer - one version of which I used as a border around part of our old tuition centre.

    If you do a display and you want to frame it somehow, that would be the way to go. Or you could use nicely printed versions of various symbols to fill gaps in your display.
